Press any key to coninue

Have you ever installed software and seen the expression

PRESS ANY KEY TO CONTINUE

Apparently, the lower end of the gene pool had no idea what that meant. So much so that HP actually had to put it in their FAQ's.

That explains it. I thought there was an 'ANY' key.

Edit: posted the above without following the link - pretty accurate, eh?

I think that bit of info should be hidden from everyone, it's a good way of distinguishing between the smart ones and those who drag their knuckles when they walk.[:D]

I wonder how many tech support guys have gotten calls complaining they didn't have an "ANY" key and their computer must be defective.
